Don’t cry, fake emo kid.

E-mail updates aren’t my thing. I don’t want to know about the latest fashion trends. I don’t want to receive weekly e-mails with discounts and exciting new product information. If I want to know, I’ll go out looking for it. That’s why the World Wide Web is so magnificent–there’s information at the stroke of a key. Despite my dislike of pseudo-spam, there is one e-mail list I signed up for with glee: The Urban Word of the Day.

Here are a few of my recent favs that may help expand your mind, as well as your vocabulary. And generally make you more cool.

Ho ho ho: Santa’s cry or three prostitutes.

WD55: An acronym for Windows Down 55 miles an hour. A primitive form of air condition most helpful to 60’s and 70’s Volkswagen Bug pilots.

Sleeper: Outwardly common looking item, that possesses something special or unique inside.

Emo kid: One who rejects "pop culture" and joins the counter-culture realm.

Zarf: Those little cardboard thingies they put around your cup of coffee at Starbucks. They call it a cup-sleeve, but it actually is called a zarf.

iPod: The world’s smallest form of penis compensation.

Gits: Short person or little kids. Someone who is bossy uses the term to address little or younger ones.

Q-tip: A person of much older age (70-80) who still is some what capable of driving. All you can see is their little white hairs creeping over the steering wheel.
